Unfortunately, while it is not common, people do die as a result of accidents and even as a result of neglect. Obviously, the person involved in the accident is unable to claim compensation but if a loved one has recently passed away as a result of any kind of accident or injury that was not their fault then you may have the right to compensation. Stockslegal can help determine whether you have a case and provide you with details on how to progress with your claim.
The Death Of A Loved One
Claiming compensation is not the first thing on a person’s mind when they lose a loved one but it may be a necessity that comes to the fore soon after. If a husband or wife dies and leaves their partner with little or no money then worry can combine with the natural grief that is being experienced. With such importance placed on the compensation that is agreed and paid, it is essential that you enlist the help of professional solicitors that will help you to secure the money that you are owed as a result of your tragedy.
Road Traffic Accidents
Road traffic accidents are a common cause of fatality. Whether your loved one was on foot, on a motorbike, driving a car, or travelling as a passenger on car or public transport, if they were killed as a result of an accident that was not their fault then compensation may be due. The modern car has many safety features but roads are busier, cars travel faster, and there are more perils waiting on every corner.
Industrial deaths are another possible cause for compensation claims. If your family member worked with asbestos and died from an asbestos related disease, such as mesothelioma or asbestos related lung cancer, then you have the right to claim compensation. It is the responsibility of all employers to look after their employees and to ensure that they are safe and protected while completing their work. In the case of asbestos related deaths, most companies knew of the dangers but continued to instruct employees to work with asbestos.
Unfortunately, time limits may apply for claiming compensation. It may not be the first thing that you want to think about following the death of a loved one but you will have to start proceedings soon after in order to ensure that you do not miss out on compensation money that is rightfully yours to claim. The money can be used for anything from providing for children, paying off the mortgage, and financing the burial and funeral.
